The April Post: Slowly Adding the Collection

My posts have been few and far between lately and unless I get a burst of energy towards collecting, I don't really see that changing anytime soon.  But I still want to grow my collection even if I am not doing it by leaps and bounds.  The cheapest route to do that would be through trade.  Here are some cards I picked up in a couple of trades in the past week:

Sorry I'm Late

First off allow me to apologize to Robert from $30 a Week Habit because he was gracious enough to send me some cards for a contest under the notion that I would write a 100 word post about the cards I received. 

I had put collecting and blogging on the backburner as my wandering mind drifted off to other pursuits only to be snapped back when I received 5 cards from Robert in my mailbox.  I fully intended to participate in the contest with a 100 word post but a mix of procrastination, work, and traveling did me in as far as collecting cards was concerned let alone blogging. 

This morning I looked at the perpetual stack of cards I seem to always have on my cluttered desk and on top were those 5 cards.  I noticed that the drawing for the contest was posted on Monday and I had missed out on writing my entry.  I am very glad that I didn't win the drawing because I was too slack to write 100 words. 

Either way, better late than never, so here is my super late entry to the $30 a Week Habit's 100 word contest:

The February Post: Gotta Get Chipper

Not much has been going on for me lately on the card collecting front as I have been pursuing some of my other hobbies more heavily in the past couple of weeks.  Yes I do consider myself a multipotentialite, so I find myself jumping between interests from time to time.  I decided it was best to embrace the scattered interests of my life instead of fighting the urge and trying to focus on one thing.  From card collecting to games to gardening to learning programming to my day job, my interests span wide and when I focus too much on one of them, I get bored.  So I found it's best for me to divvy up my time between all of them.  I won't become an expert and any of these things, but I at least I know I will be happy with that.

Ok, ok....I know you didn't come here to read the ramblings of a madman.  You want to see cards!
